We report a case of congenital foot drop in a term neonate born through cesarean section for breech presentation. The antenatal history was unremarkable; the baby was born well and no significant anomalies were noted at birth except for right congenital foot drop. The rest of the neurological examination was unremarkable with normal head and spine ultrasound scans. The postnatal period was otherwise unremarkable with normal feeding and examination. Baby was discharged home in stable condition with regular physiotherapy on follow-up. The foot drop completely resolved by 3 months of age with physiotherapy alone. Baby is currently doing well with normal growth and development.
